driving the d38 with anything less then 200 watts will not give you power you need, assuming your room is average size (13x16).

Hello all D38 owners, I own a pair of these for 2yrs+. Hraouf1 your A-45 will run @ 90watts /ch and not 45 as the D38's are 4 ohms. ProAc say even when running them with high quality amps with an output as low as 10w /ch will be fine. I run my D38's with Accuphase E-408 Int Amp (260w /ch) & DP-57 CDP (just love the Accuphase gear !!) and was thinking soon of upgrading to the E-550 (60w /ch class A) ...I thought the same problem but my local dealer said it's no problem at all, they said the 60w 'class A' output is not the same when compared to in class A-B - its apparently higher. Re: D38's are u going for the 'R' version ...have u heard a comparison between the normal D38 and 'R' - would like to know which sounds better - soft dome or ribbon?? ProAc's soft dome still produce stunningly gorgeous highs...
noliton, thanks but i have the choice between the proacs or the martin logans.
justrody, thanks a lot, the dealer i am dealing sells a lot of proacs with cary audio, and according to him its relatively better with the carrys but not by a wide margin. any how i am intending to go for the R and ill let you know the results as soon as i hear them.
and by the way i have the same setup like yours in another house but with the D25.
